TEMPLE NORMANTON: Coronation diamond anniversary tea raises £250 for St James Church

St James Church at Temple Normanton held a tea party to celebrate the 60th annniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.

Afternoon teas were served with sandwiches freshly made ‘while you wait’, along with scones, jam and cream, home made cakes, tea and coffee. Three young people, Holly and Bobby Wylie and Sophie Jo Smith made special sandwiches and cakes which they sold to customers.

Thanks have been expressed to Barbara and Julie Marshall for organising the event, and doing much of the baking, with help and contributions from Mary Thompson, Maureen Raybold, Kath Potter, Sue Hunt and Heather Davies. Thanks to Barry Hunt for erecting the gazebo and cleaning the church path, and to Glenn Potter for using his plumbing skills in the kitchen!

There was a raffle during the afternoon with prizes going to Beryl Potter, Marie Watson, Father Malcolm Ainscough, Liz Holden, George Russell, Janet Dowsett, Roy Dowsett, Holly Davies, Val Webb, Maureen Raybold, Ruth Bailey, Ann Nixon, Stella Vardy and Julie Marshall.

The event also raised £250 for the funds of St James Church, Temple Normanton.
